I came up on this one visiting family in Siler City today. The fire broke through the roof just as the first units were arriving on scene. The fire was in the kitchen area and it looked like they did a good job keeping it contained to that side of the building. I think they used a hydrant across HWY 64 initially. During overhaul they switched to a water shuttle in the parking lot with a few tankers to open the road back up. Siler City, Silk Hope, and Bonlee Fire Departments were on scene.

And here’s a WTVD story on same, with footage of the structure afterward http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?sectio..

Makes me think of the Roadhouse fire in Raleigh, which happened during eating hours, and require patrons to evacuate. That one was destroyed.
